Here we go again! Another hyper-liberal reaction by "smart" college graduates who can’t compartmentalize their brains and differentiate words.
The five-year reunion for Princeton University’s Class of 2012 is coming up in June and the former students thought a Star Wars theme might be a lot of fun. An invitation was sent out encouraging everyone to “Show up to the Revenge of the Fifth in style, with a [purchased] classy plastic bracelet on your arm and a Stormtrooper mask on your face.”
But not so fast. A few classmates objected to the costume idea because Stormtroopers are Nazis. Everybody knows that!
An e-mail was sent out explaining the triggering: “A few of our classmates reached out expressing concerns over our choice to use Stormtroopers as our costume inspiration. We have since been informed of the origin of this word and its connections to early- to mid-20th century Germany.”
“This is something neither we nor anyone on your Reunion Committee were aware of but take very seriously,” the message continued. “Tonight we made the decision to remove these costumes.”
The committee said they will be suggesting another costume idea from the franchise that’s less offensive.
One thing’s for sure, it can’t be Jar Jar Binks. Nothing is more offensive than that.
